East Coast FM Stepping Up For Cancer Across County Wicklow

East Coast FM are 'Stepping Up For Cancer' until the 8th of April to raise vital funds for cancer support services across Wicklow and for The Wicklow Hospice.

Highlights of Friday's walk between Blessington and Roundwood with Dave Harrington, Louise Tighe and Gavin Dowd.

The East Coast team, accompanied by supporters, are walking across the Garden County, visiting each of the Cancer Support Centres across 8 days.


Over 12 years, Wicklow's Favourite Radio Station has raised over €400,000 for Cancer Support Services and The Wicklow Hospice thanks to the incredible generosity of people across the county.
